An Idea Who’s Time Has Come

Remodeling projects and services generate more mess, stress and consumer complaints than any other industry. Efforts to educate and regulate the industry’s service providers –designers and contactors – have done little to remove the tarnish from the industry image.

Until now, the homeowners got their advice from the media, friends, relatives, designers, and contractors. But the media cannot account for the one-of-a-kind needs of each family. Friends and relatives are generally not experts, and designers and contractors really only recommend what’s in their own best interest.

Remodeling coaches are independent of design and construction firms. Their only agenda is to give unbiased expert counsel to their clients.

Each family’s situation is unique. Homeowners no longer have to settle for cookie cutter solutions. Coaches bring new consumer-focused services and benefits to remodeling.

Seven professionals, from across the country, meet weekly via conference call to hone their services. They share ties to the residential housing industry. Members of the group are working for a superior remodeling experience for their clients.

Each coach has his or her own vision, mission, and coaching technique. Each coach created a niche, a name and concept for coaching homeowners. Each coach helps homeowners solve their remodeling issues.

Remodeling Coaches provide one-on-one support for homeowners when they remodel. Coaches help homeowners with their project relationships, planning, selection of designers & contractors, contract review, and quality control.

They also coach Do-It-Yourself and Contract-It-Yourself homeowners. A DIY coach often works along side his client while a CIY coach provides the systems and training to schedule and manage subcontractors and material suppliers

Coaches help manage the risks by: minimizing changes; qualifying the design and construction professionals; and by reviewing the contract documents for fairness and completeness. Coaches are another set of (expert) eyes.

Coaching services are a great value. Remodeling coaches pay for themselves in terms of saving and stretching dollars; saving their client’s time; shortening schedules; and improving quality, service, and peace of mind.

Coaching is an idea whose time has come.
